After a brief but uncomfortable argument about who gets to watch District 9 with whom, the boys review Batman and Robin #3, Dark Avengers #8 and Darkness/Pitt #1! This episode signals a return to form for EJ, Alex, and John, with the return of Quick Shots and everyone’s favorite segment… WAR OF THUMBS!
I came to terms with it very early on, especially when it came to Dave Johnson cover: Less is More. In my opinion, this single image summarizes the gist of who Frank Castle is as a character. Johnson may be done with his 100 Bullets covers, but I’m glad he hasn’t stopped dishing out awesome pieces like this.
Don’t worry, ladies! EJ, Alex, and John are back and cockier than ever. Fresh from their hiatus in which they soaked up some R and R, enriched their mojo, and generally just got on with their lives, they’ve realized that they missed each other.
Admit it. You did too.
This week’s reviews include the hottest books of recent weeks, including BLACKEST NIGHT #1 and #2, ULTIMATE AVENGERS #1, and BATGIRL #1. After a modified quick shot round, the boys discuss summer events and what the Big Two are doing right and/or wrong with the yearly events.
